Thrashers CHL prospects update

I had one of our other writers do an update on the Thrashers CHL prospects for us -- Matt MacInnis, who lives in New Brunswick. Thanks Matt!

Not so good overall, between the injuries and the struggles, only Sharrow and Coburn are a real satisfaction at this point. Since Lehtonen and Slater are also struggling a little bit because (maybe?) of average teammates, it may be a good thing that this year won't really count for the NHL !

How about because they themselves are struggling. Let's see some personal accountability here.

Just a quick correction on Turple - he won't be battling for a starting position in Kitchener. Di Rienzo was traded to Oshawa in the deal. Turple will be the starter in Kitchener.

And even Sharrow's been a bit iffy from time-to-time this season.

Consistency, I've found, has been a bit of an issue with him in his career. He'll have a game where he is playing off his ass, throwing hits, making dangerous coast-to-coast rushes, then the next game, he can be falling all over the place, blowing coverages, and whatnot. Hard to get consistency going when he's being shuttled between forward and defense, sometimes in the same game.

Still, when he is on (which has been more often than not), he can be one of the more dangerous players out there. And once this forward experiment nonsense is finished with, and he can get back to strictly concentrating on defense, he'll get those problems back under control no doubt.

Id agree with Phil about Sharrow. It is like watching Sandis Ozolinsh kind of. When he is on he is amazing, but when he is having a bad game he scares the hell out of me. Last game he let a 16 year old rookie who is 5'09 blow right past him at center ice like Jimmy wasnt even there.

But with many offensive dmen, you take the good with the bad Id like to see how many of his points are on the PP because i think 70-80% are at 5 on 5 which is a plus. Halifax has a bad PP, so im surprised to see Jimmys point totals so high.

Well the year is still young so hopefully these guys can turn it up a notch for the remainder of the year. Its to bad about the injuries though but you cant help that.

As for teh AHL guys i think they arent out of it yet and can turn things around. Kari isn't playing that great but he's not playing badly either as his numbers are still looking pretty good. Is it just me or is there alot of older AHL veterans on the Chicago team?

Michigan State.

So far he leads the team in points: 6/11/17 through 12/4.
Colton Fretter is second with 8/8/16 through 12/4.

Good for him.
He's one of the names that stuck with me from the 02 draft.I'd hoped the leafs would pick him,Steen or Ward.They chose Steen which looks ok but it will be interesting to follow those 3 and see how wise/unwise a choice it was in the long haul.
Anyway,Thrasher management has done an excellent job putting together the foundation of a very exciting competetive team that should be a joy to watch over the next few years as they grow together into a solid contender.
Also picking up Havelid and Modry to solidify the backend until your fine young d-men have the experience and confidence needed to play top 4 minutes was a big plus.Lookin good in Thrasher land folks,you must be excited about the furure.
